    a few weeks ago, and I have been meaning to post pictures.

    I will just say this, if you have been on the fence about getting a DS , WAIT, until the DS Lite comes out in the states.

    Do not settle for a regular one. This one is a bajiilion times better.

    Plus, they sent me free candy!

    How exactly do you feel it's better? I'm not saying it isn't, I was just wondering what you thought of it...

    The screen is a million times brighter, and the battery life is just as long. That alone is an improvement. The stylus is also bigger, the power button has been moved off to the side, as a slider, so no more accidental turn offs, and the overrall design is far less cumbersome.

    It also has a dust cover for the GBA slot.

    How's the weight? it looks roughly the same length. Does it come in any other colors than that blue/white? And will it withstand dropping on the floor from four feet high and be ok like my regular DS?

    I'm considering getting one when it comes out here but I already have a DS and am trying to justify it.

    Its a little bit smaller length wise, so far it comes in midnight blue, ice blue (as pictured) and crystal white. No idea what colors will come states side.

    And yes it doesnt handle a 4 foot floor drop.

    here is a good comparison.

    Thanks for posting that vid...it really put it into perspective for me. As soon as they come stateside, it's trade-in time!

    I envy the DS Lite. So slick and so bright. Even though I have a normal DS, I may have to get one when it comes out here.

    Two questions:

    Does the DS Lite INDEED still have a functioning GBA port..? The video showed it, but...I need to confirm it, for my own wallet's sake.

    Secondly; is the Lite more comfortable to hold? I tried my friend's DS this weekend, and after playing for about half an hour or so, my thumbs and and hand felt sort of cramped. I'm hoping the Lite is a more comfortable design.


    Hopefully, the May American release date for this thing stands. The lack of preorders, though, is troubling...

    Why would they include a non-functioning GBA slot? of course it works...

    Thanks for posting up that video Ironhideforever :thumb  . I was going to buy a DS Lite anyway, but that video cleared any lingering doubts from my mind (I was tempted to just pick up a DS but now I'm definitely going to wait). Now to pick up a copy of Castlevania before it becomes impossible to find.

    Well after that Vid I'm sold on it. I was debating on a DS and well if that little bastich is coming I'll take it over the old design. Just wait and see what color choices we have.

    Thanks for the link! I think I'll wait for the lite then unless I get a real craving for the PSP.

    EGM claims it'll launch at the $130 price mark, which is a really, REALLY nice treat!

    Incase anyone didn't notice (I didn't the first time) but that sweet link Ironhideforever put up to the video also has a part 2 and 3 (right on the same page) which answers more questions about the DS Lite. So checks it out. Also a sweet little Zelda:p hantom Hourglass video to boot. :thumb

    I like the "DS Lite is thinner than a Turkey sandwich" part, made me laugh. Yeah I think I'll be getting one too even though I have a DS, but it was a gift so it's all good.
